About the Work
“I work not far from here and I can just imagine the excitement in an up-and-coming city. The buildings wouldn't have been that old at the time of this photo and it's wonderful to see the fountain in the middle of the avenue where it remains today. Going to town was as good as it gets back then, that's why I love the lady on the bike who is immaculately dressed!” – Ritesh Verma, ‘My Choice’ December 2021
